Amina Figarova & Susan Palma Nidel and Laura Conwesser, flutes | Connecting ACO Community Volume III

In response to the impacts of COVID-19 on composers and performers, American Composers Orchestra announces Connecting ACO Community, a new initiative to commission short works for solo instrument or voice. Each composer will receive $500 to write the work, and each performer will receive $500 to perform the work, with the rights to stream for six months. With this project, ACO aims to support artists who need financial assistance; to create new work that will live beyond this crisis; and provide virtual, interactive performances to ACO’s supporters and the general public. This event will include the world premiere of Amina Figarova’s new work for flutists Susan Palma Nidel and Laura Conwesser, followed by an exclusive Q&A with the composer and performers, hosted by Ed Yim and Derek Bermel.
